The best grinding for the well-being of our pets


We love our pets and recognise how important nutrition is to the well-being of them. We have been grinding a wide variety of formulations for our customers in the pet food industry for decades now. We can handle highly effective and sensitive feed components as well as complex environmental conditions at the site. We work together with our customers to create optimal conditions even for difficult process requirements. In doing so, we take into consideration current market trends and the requirements for the production of breed-, age-, nutrition- or disease-specific feeds.

We aim to create the foundations for a nutrition that promotes animal health with our grinding solutions. We know that grinding has the same function as chewing. This is the beginning of food ingestion and is necessary for an efficient utilisation of the ingredients. Working closely with our customers, we create an optimal product to ensure a longer life for dogs, cats and co.

More than 60 years’ expertise

Our solution for the production of pet food

We identify the individual production steps in the preparation of the raw material based on the multi-layered requirements for pet food. The optimum configuration of the grinding system is crucial for the smooth running, optimum utilisation and consequently also the economic efficiency of the entire subsequent production process.

Our large chamber hammer mill FD, which has been specially developed for grinding demanding recipes and products, allows us to guarantee efficient, powerful yet low-impact grinding for the production of the finest feed qualities.
